417. How to Become Your Own Role Model

There was a blog entry I made some time ago about the documentary ‘Come and Worry With Us’

397. Come and Stop Worrying about Money & Children with us

about one of my favorite bands and generally discussing the problems that come when lacking sufficient money while still wanting to keep producing art, in this case performing and so generally seeing a more realistic approach to the lives of the people ‘on the spotlight’ so to speak, however I realize there is another dimension there to look at and that is part of my lack of objectivity when viewing this documentary, because I had a particular kinship toward the band itself and the people in it, specifically the leader of the band who happens to be part of another band that has been well known for remaining ‘out of the system,’ giving few interviews over the years, rejecting prizes from mainstream music industry, having no lyrics on their songs yet using their titles and general sounds used in the music as a constant reminder of the turbulent times we live in – such as wars, economic depression, general emotional depression, worrying about the future etc.

So, within investigating this, I realized that the people I had ‘admired’ throughout my life were mostly artists that have been able to ‘make it’ into the system without ‘selling out’ or what I then judged as ‘making lots of money into the system while escaping from complying to “the establishment.” That was my type of ‘ideal’ in life, to be ‘out of the system’ – I once thought that was possible, lol – and still make good money and speak on the frontline of ‘the oppressed’ so to speak. I’ve debunked in the past this character but there’s a dimension that I had missed looking at in terms of how I had admired individuals that I perceived as a form of ‘warriors’ themselves, to ‘stick to their guns’ so to speak, to stick to their beliefs and what they stand for which I see that this particular individual mostly does.

 

Efrim Menuck

 

In the documentary ‘Come and Worry with Us’ Efrim Menuck actually refuses to place higher prices to concert tickets in order for them to make more money  – and so have more economic solvency – because he wants to keep to the point of having ‘fair ticket prices’ for the public. This is something that I would have praised and seen as remarkable – but, is it really Self-Honest to actually go through hardship just to stick to one belief? Or is it really compromising the wellbeing of his own son/family/band for the sake of keeping his stance of anti-capitalism? Is it really common sensical to have a constant war toward money itself and wage a ‘fight against capitalism’ while refusing to do any other work and so placing your own financial security at risk, just because of not wanting to ‘sell out’ or ‘kiss corporate ass’ so to speak? My ideal was to be able to also ‘stick to my guns’ and rebel to the system in one way or another, but back then I had no idea of how even money was created or whether there was a genuine possibility to be ‘outside of the system’ – which I now understand of course cannot be a possibility even if I lived in Papua New Guinea.

 

So, in this, I realize that any trace of creating a preference for a particular individual based on the ‘ideals’ they stand for and those ideals being essentially based on antagonism toward the ‘establishment’ is still idolizing part of the problem in this world, because their ‘qualities’ are based on opposing something, on waging war against a certain faction and that’s essentially re-creating the idea of ‘resistance’ toward something or someone, instead of actually focusing on understanding the problem and so developing solutions.  Efrim himself has said how musicians are cowards because they can sing about the problems but most are not directly involved in creating solutions – and most of the solutions that come from people that follow this kind of ideals are based on further revolts and protesting, which is no actual solution in fact.

 

art workers won't kiss ass

 

 

Today I was pondering why so many artists can see the problems in society , but all that they have managed to do is expose it in pictures, in complicated objects and abstractions that would take more than one ‘quick view’ from a person to understand the actual message most of the times. I have then seen that as much as art has had this role of pointing out what is wrong with society and mirror it back, it lacks any substantial process of creating solutions. Some have gotten more involved into what would seem as social or anthropological work, getting involved with ‘the art piece’ that is part of a particular community/in situ, however those are still packets of solutions here and there, while the more general type of solutions will always come from the greater realms that still direct our society, which is politics, economics, education systems, media, etc. And art is still from my perspective a niche part of society that creates meta-languages that only a few can understand.

 

I simply realized that in order to ‘create change in the world’ as I have aspired to do, it takes more than just presenting images, sculptures, videos to people. Sure, it is a stepping stone, a bridge – but ultimately it is one’s own process of self-change that really enables one to understand also the magnitude of the problem and so also the best ways to go directing ourselves to support this change as well.

It’s interesting that one of the reasons I wanted to be an ‘artist’ is precisely for the kind of statements an attitudes generally attributed to artists such as: ‘an artist won’t lick the establishment’s boots.’ I had not questioned even for one moment that in doing this, one is standing in a constant warfare toward ‘the system’ instead of realizing we all are the system. In this stance, one is acting as any other ego in this world that is separated from others, that is standing with some and against others, while having no real practical solution development process in it. In this it is about clarifying that it’s not about the process of creation here, but rather the personalities I had placed more value and as such an experience on.

 

Self Forgiveness

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ever idolize a particular lifestyle that stood for a particular idea of persona that I wanted to be based on my desire to stand ‘against the system’ without ever realizing how only an ego can stand in separation from another.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to idolize another individual based on the principles of ‘standing up to the system’ or ‘sticking to their guns’ as a way to exemplify people that would still survive and ‘make a living’ in an apparent non-sellout way to ‘the system,’ wherein I had created a sense of heroism toward people that would ‘dare’ to do this, and see them as role models, without realizing that in reality creating such kind of ‘stance’ toward ‘the system’ is once again perpetuating the problem as in standing ‘against’ those that we perceive as ‘the wrongdoers,’ ‘the evil ones,’ ‘the capitalistic mafia,’ without realizing we are all part of and co-creators of this ‘evil mafia’ as our world and money system and we would not be able to have the lives we have right now if we weren’t part of the system as  a whole, which implies that by virtue of being a human being in this world, using money, using resources, relating to others, existing in this world = it implies we are all part of the system.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to romanticize the idea of my ‘role models’ being individuals that were cryptic in nature, were antagonistic yet sad and dismal about the state of affairs in the world, which I associated with being profoundly ‘sensitive’ individuals and within this, justifying their stance of being ‘against the system,’ without realizing that this is in fact a victimized state of showing ‘the system’ what ‘it has done to them’ and also remain within such excuse to not partake in the actual process of self-responsibility and self-creation that is required to genuinely change things.

We can actually all learn how to coexist, communicate, come to agreements and work together within the system using our creativity for the betterment of all in a Practical Way, instead of using art as a way to only use representations to criticize, judge, point fingers and blame and taking the vantage point, the righteousness of being the ‘fair one’ that is doing ‘nothing wrong’ and can only resort to ‘complain about it.’ This is precisely how we have disempowered ourselves, by creating yet another bubble in society wherein all the people that are most informed about the problems, that see and understand the problems, that can even create ‘art’ based on it are not really working within the spheres where real change can take place, which is in education, in politics, in law systems wherein we can in fact change the codes, the rules and how we manage our society.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have surrounded myself with people that I thought I had admired for ‘taking a stance’ within the system, mostly of judging and complaining about it which I once identified as ‘powerful’ but in fact, it is the most disempowered state one can be in, and more so only channeling one’s observations into a song or a painting or a discourse against ‘the powers that be’ instead of genuinely understanding the process of changing the world beginning with oneself, stopping all antagonistic stance toward ‘the world’ and the perceived ‘evil ones’ and walk the actual process of self-forgiving all the antagonism and inner conflict toward reality so that one can focus on learning how we came to create this mess, this world-system problem and so focus our time, attention and dedication to becoming the solution, to creating and presenting solutions as that’s the real way we can genuinely unite in one single voice that stands as self-responsibility and no longer remain as futile resistance and antagonism.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself for having ever been in awe and amazed at people that I would see ‘standing up to the establishment’ or ‘daring’ to speak about everything that is wrong about the world and see them as heroes, as ‘superior’ individuals – without realizing that speaking against, shouting, marching, protesting and joining the antagonistic ‘choir’ so to speak is rather a stepping stone and a relatively easier thing to do  – it also creates a self-belief of righteousness and justice, but what has been missed is pondering how such reclamation, how such anger and spite toward the system is in fact supporting to create a solution at all? How is one’s anger, one’s sadness and despair, one’s decision to ‘not sell out’ in fact supporting to change the nature of ourselves as individuals and so with doing that, changing the nature of the world system that does function in a enslavement-mode.

Isn’t it only self-interest to create an experience within oneself of righteousness about one’s ‘beliefs’ and stance when such beliefs are defined according to begin against something/someone? In fact, all our past revolutionaries have become personalities printed on posters as an example to new generations of a perceived ‘way forward’ for change through ideals of change and a call for revolution, when in fact that will only lead to and perpetuate the ongoing wars we have.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to associate the word idol or hero in the context of people I have seen have apparently ‘stood up to the system’ but only in a fighting mode or in a ‘resistance’ manner, which ultimately keeps the war going between ‘two sides’ that antagonize each other and do not actually get to put down the defenses and work together in self-responsibility to create genuine solutions. This would be the new heroism, wherein we no longer have to ‘fight a battle’ to ‘win’ and so be identified as the ‘hero of the day’ but rather define here-oism as an individual that lives by principle, that commits to being fully HERE as Life and whose actions are aimed at benefiting him/herself and others as well.

Heroism means to stand in absolute self-responsibility and accountability, to ensure one stops all inner wars first, then a real hero or role model emerges as someone that won’t ever antagonize themselves with another, but instead lives the realization that it is only through self-forgiving our polarization, our antagonism and inner battles that we can create a genuine world living in peace and harmony, just as the one that many artists or ‘heroes’ have attempted to create. But ultimately, living in actual self-responsibility makes you no one’s enemy, no one’s ‘freedom fighter’ and so, war is annihilated when recognizing and living in equality.

 

Integrity is the congruence sticking to live by and apply living principles that stand within the consideration of what is best for all, that implies not only sticking to what one prefers or sees as ‘righteous’ but implies actually actively pushing oneself to become a self-responsible and self honest human being. This means walking the talk and stopping any form of hypocrisy by denying what is here as ourselves and blaming someone for it. All is self-responsibility, all is our self-creation.

 

Real self-change begins with oneself, begins with recognizing that this system as ‘capitalism’ is not the problem in itself, but ourselves as human beings . Taking an antagonistic stance and pretending to be an ‘outsider’ to it all is abdicating self-responsibility and creating a new self-religion, a trendy form of excuse, justification and self-belief that the battle against the government/ the establishment can in any way be ‘won’ when there’s nothing to win in a world where if we don’t actually get to work together, we will simply deplete everything that is here and we won’t have anyone to battle on any longer because fighting is never the solution, self-direction and common sense is. Why haven’t we realized how we actually co-create wars as we fight for our plight to freedom? Why should we even have to ‘fight’ for something that should be given as a guaranteed living right?

The solution for myself is once again to be very aware of any reminiscence of praising individuals for having ‘strong beliefs’ that can be disguised as justice, as ‘fighting for what’s right’ but in fact when looking at how they live, what they think and where they stand, compromising one’s financial stability for the sake of ‘sticking to one’s beliefs’ is not common sense. More so with artists, there’s a lot of creativity and engineering processes that are being squandered only in pieces that are shown in museums or streets, but still just pieces of matter, words or images that intend to open up people’s eyes but I’ve realized that art in itself as a material thing is is not enough – it can be a starting point, a bridge, an opening toward a certain perspective or view,  but currently we mostly lack ways in which to give a follow-up to that ‘awakening’ process.

That’s why sharing about this self-creative process is the most important thing I see is required in our current society, so that we can shift our focus from the fights and antagonism or despair, toward an actual recognition of our power and ability to change ourselves and so change the world. Sounds like a cliché, but I’m testing this real time and it works, and it is not a quick fix since it is like re-weaving one’s own life toward a supportive outcome. I can guarantee that you won’t be the same as you were before, but isn’t that the point of living: growing out of the constriction and taking one’s own self-directive decisions and choices in life? What a better way to do this but within a principle where all/everyone is considered, where one recognizes one’s own potential and so lives in the world embracing the current consequential outflows of our past, because we understand that cringing about it makes no difference – and instead, we focus on applying, living and becoming the solution.

 

Within this I realize that I have actually stopped following ‘role models’ and decided to rather commit myself to be my own role model and within that become a living example for myself and others of what living as a self-responsible being implies. This is then something that entails committing to live by the principles of life in self-honesty wherein I decide to make of my life my own work of art that I can actually fully stand for and so debunk the ideas of having to follow other role models that so far have led us nowhere. Not even admiring a great man that shared with us the process of Self Forgiveness is acceptable, because in admiration one beliefs one is incapable of standing as equal to another, and that’s the whole point of walking this process: to recognize our full potential as equals within our individuality, which means: each one holds a very specific key to world-change.

 

Life is rather short, we only got one life so let’s live it every moment fully in self-creation mode.

 

Inspire yourself with people around the globe standing up and walking the process of self creation:

397. Come and Stop Worrying about Money & Children with us

Commentary on the Documentary ‘Come and Worry With Us’ featuring the band ‘Thee Silver Mt. Zion’

 

 

Many times I used to say that ‘Music had saved my life,’ and I never questioned that much about the actual lives that musicians have. I probably was ‘happy’ to imagine that they made a good amount of money to be living well after having so many fans and so many shows but today I got to realize that that’s not the case and in a way it does give me yet another reason to implement a new way of living where no one should ever have to suffer, be existing in constant worry, fear and anxiety that comes from living in plain survival-mode when trying to ‘make it’ in this world in an honest manner, which is impossible in a system that is forged with the idea of success as the ultimate goal and neglecting how it currently is – most of the times – achieved only through the effective abuse and control imposed upon others, which means having to cheat, lie, deceive, be dishonest and selfish to be able to make it ‘that far’ without questioning why it is that not everyone can achieve such ‘high standards’ in the society? Why is there no real equal opportunity? why is this ‘successful living’ rather sold to us as this magnanimous lifestyle that is actually unsustainable if we all had the same ability to live in such a lavish modality – this means: it’s not meant to be part of what real life is meant to be in fact.

The documentary Come Worry With Us is an example of how one of my favorite bands actually live like in terms of ‘lifestyle’ and financial woes with the amount of money they earn, which is certainly a lot less than what I would have expected which my assumption of them being a ‘famous band’ therefore not ever having to worry about paying their bills – and here this should apply to Everyone – but this is specifically to debunk the ideas we also create around ‘the rich and the famous’ where not all ‘famous’ people really make ‘a lot of money’ as one could imagine.

Specifically here Godspeed You! Black Emperor and its offshoot Thee Silver Mount Zion are bands that I could have identified as the perfect soundtrack for everything that I could only probably only paint and try to ‘picture’ in frames: a desolate decadent world that is going down the drain, seeing nothing else but death and destruction and the perfect soundtrack for ‘the end of times,’ as well as being what can be defined as a ‘political band’ when it comes to denouncing warfare and the general deception in the political realm at the moment.  But something changed in the life of the common member of both bands Efrim Menuck: he’s got a child now and so he realized that he had to ‘stop his own cynicism’ about life/the world and himself as now there is a person he’s brought into this world that should grow up to live in a better world than the one he is currently living in. I fully agree with this, and even if I don’t have children, every time I would see pregnant women or know of children being born I would create this inner fear almost sadness for them coming to this world that we are abusing and depleting faster than it could ever ‘replenish’ itself, while doing nothing to stop the ongoing destructive trend.

Human Chains (pic) - Copy

 

 

How many times do we say: ‘we require creating a better future for our kids’? It is saddening to see every single day news and articles of the kind of atrocities that are created toward children just because parents can’t afford taking good care of them – from dumping them on the garbage, abandoning them, giving them to adoption or having to make them work too and support with paying the basic needs at home. If there’s something I could worry about this life is precisely whether the little ones will have clean water to drink, clean air to breathe, whether they will be able to run around the streets and riding bikes and going out to playgrounds… or if they are going to be genuinely supported to their utmost potential at schools, whether their parents will be stable enough to raise them – huge point of concern – whether they are going to be having healthier ways of entertaining themselves, healthier eating habits – which are taught at home/ and through culture – whether they can in fact stop copying the fears, the mentality of the parents, whether they can in any way escape the generational sins that we’ve created in absolute selfishness because we believed that ‘it wasn’t going to be us facing the consequences,’ well, here we are, look around you and within you.

 

I would certainly not want anyone to suffer in this world, yet it is all I could always notice around me, or maybe it’s because it is existent as me and in everyone else: abuse, ignorance to the reality of how we create this world based on our absence of care, of presence to direct ourselves in our lives and relate to each other in a supportive manner.

In my case, all I could ever paint was suffering and I didn’t even know why because I had a good life compared to many that really have no support in this world. I do remember a phase in my life when I was around 9-10 years old where my father had a big problem at work, someone bought a lot of merchandise from him and ran away with it using a bad check – and we were almost broke and hearing about the fact that our house, that patrimony that my father was so proud about as ‘our property’ could be lost – the sheer thought of that frightened me a lot at night, the worry, sadness and frustration from seeing my father so depressed, so down, so worried and so angry as that was the only way he could exert his inner frustration about the legal situation and never ever getting that money back. This affected us all at home and I endured what it was to conform with having the basics and learned how to not to ask for more than what I truly required.

I remember at times thinking that if I didn’t exist any longer they could save the money from my food, my healthcare, my school which was a great effort since it was a good private school, I knew they were doing the effort to secure my future, to give me the best – and I know that every single parent wants the best for their children – but most nowadays cannot afford it at all, no matter how self-willed they have: there is simply no structural support to make those at the bottom of the pyramid scheme to rise. This is structural violence and children are meant to somehow accept that they are born into poverty, that mom and dad have to work 12 hours a day considering the commuting times and so children are raised by daycare employees, by internet and television, by mass-norms at school that are designed to also make them obedient and complacent workers and get to be just like mom and dad: workaholics by necessity, not by choice – or else, there is no guaranteed survival – this is the current violence we are inherently accepting in our everyday living, threatening each other’s life – we have to also recognize we’ve done this to ourselves by leaving the system in the hands of a few.

 

Nowadays I see the direct consequences where I live of how poverty affects families in a very pervasive manner. To me this place is ‘temporary,’ but for many it is the place and environment they are born into, it is the people they will marry and have their children with and also die in until the last days knowing to do nothing else but to work, drink every weekend, have ‘parties’ and pretend that life is fine while going back every Monday to earn the bread with the sweat of their brow the rest of the week, hoping for something or someone like a president to finally change their lives.

The frustration that parents create at work which is based on the threat of losing their job/not making enough money becomes the constant experience that parents then in turn become toward their children, toward their partners and so toward the world: a survivalist mentality that cannot be stable, here, present, enjoying life because of always being tensed, worried and anxious about getting the next paycheck to pay all the bills.

 

Jessica and Efrim discussing finances

Come Worry With Us (2013)

 

We are all currently required to break our illusions behind the usual question of ‘who would you like to be when you grow up?’ and then growing up and realizing that was just a dream, a fantasy, an ideal promoted to us to keep us completely separated from acknowledging the reality: this current world-system is designed to keep dreams on heavy rotation, to keep fueling the hope, the illusions, the wishing and desiring for the most hedonist lifestyle possible, a promised reality that never seems to just manifest into reality and it won’t for sure – nor do I personally consider it should ever, unless we actually work on creating such stability for all and make it sustainable for every other living being in this planet: environment, animals, humans, everyone.

Efrim explains in the documentary how he is part of the last generation that was promised a great future and from there on, we all got the opposite. It’s true, the first year in literature school we got told we were not there to ‘be writers’ and be creative, but to learn the hard-knocks of the science of analyzing literature and how we would barely make a buck with that – in art school we got told the most debasing facts about the poverty-lifestyle one usually goes through when trying to ‘make a living as an artist’ grounding us on how we could not just expect to just ‘be famous’ and earn millions like Hirst overnight. It might seem like a cruel thing to do crushing young adults’ dreams, however it is also the stark nature of the reality we have created for each other.

From there I started questioning a lot about myself, my decision to be an artist – would I make it? What would I have to do to be as ‘big’ as x artist that I admired at the time? And I bet this goes on in the mind of every other person that is taught to aim at the highest peak in a world where the peak is already occupied and not available for everyone else.

 

Does it make sense to live this way? To know we have all of this great potential as human beings and the way we could actually change the entire nature of ourselves and our relationships with one another if we were able to provide us the guaranteed right to live in dignity, to have money to live well if you’d like to dedicate yourself to a non-lucrative profession or arts which is also not a secured ‘job position’ but is dependent on several subjectivities like being liked, being ‘good’ at the eyes of others, being able to relate well to people to make business; getting to be known and published if you are a musician or a writer, or being part of a gallery and not even that guarantees good wages any longer.

 

There is also the point of having children and how that becomes a new primary responsibility for adults where one has to choose between being a parent or being a professional, especially if one is a woman. As an artist, for example, there’s not been such great possibilities to have a breathable life in a world where no more records are being sold, where art is sold only to a few elites and that is a minority of course, where movies and music are being downloaded for free, where people cannot afford to go watch a play, concert or sometimes even go to the movies – instead, all that is promoted is more greed and illusions of power in national TV/ media at home which is still the one point that seems to define what people conceive ‘life’ to be as this idea of ‘fame and fortune’, hence the belief that every person in showbiz should do as well as people on TV – but they don’t, at least not the ones that try and make honest business.

 

 

Some of the artists I enjoy and admire in a way have been able to ‘stay true’ to themselves in a world-system where arts are also another industry and the same abusive policies apply as everywhere else. In this case, music is something that inspired me to begin questioning the system. I began painting while listening to Radiohead’s OK Computer on repeat mode and all their discography became a way to also understand the underlying suffering that I could perceive in everything and everyone but somehow wasn’t that evident to me until 11 years ago when I first began painting. Now it’s very clear to me how this change has to be implemented and I have a clarity to it, to the point where I’ve stopped painting the death and destruction on this world and instead started to investigate, educate myself and begin actively working to promote and establish solutions that not only will benefit artists of course, but that will be a living guarantee for every person that is currently unable to fend for themselves and as such have are unable to develop themselves to become the person they know they all can be. We cannot also continue having honest and principled individuals to ‘adjust’ and ‘align’ to the current skewed mentality of a dog-eat-dog world where worry, fear, stress and paranoia have become everyone’s daily chronic sickness, this is the abuse we are dictating upon each other and it makes no sense at all.

 

This is not the world I want to live in, this is not The Good Life that our parents were once able to have – and some of you younger than me reading this not that for sure – but we have to question why every year that goes by things get worse, wages don’t go up while inflation keeps going up and the majority of the wealth is stacked in the hands of the minority: this is a suicidal machine we are operating here, and we have to stop it before we all sink together in it.

 

I want the children of this world to be able to have parents that can be satisfied with what they do with their lives, that can have sufficient time at home or simply available to be with them without the stress, without the fears, without the depression, without the constant every day nagging thought of what if there is no money tomorrow that I can get today to keep feeding my family? This is the most stressful situation anyone can face: being broke, being homeless, being with exorbitant debts that are usually now even transferred from parents onto children to ensure that one can ‘own’ something in this world, yet this world as the Earth itself didn’t come with such instructions of ‘how to use it’: we created them but so we also live the problem, so we have to understand it and be able to create and propose solutions, which is what we should all focus on if we really want to keep having our joys in life, such as music for example in my case.

9. Seykingumu

 

So, the least I can do to honor myself and those human beings that also see the necessity for change, that collaborate with creating awareness in their own ways such as with art and music and genuinely consider that we can all work together and make things work for everyone, is to dedicate myself and my life to promote the consideration and necessity that we have toward each other, the good life that I would like to give to those that have nurtured me either physically or as a living being in my ability to be inspired and influenced by people that were able to tell me through their words, their musical expression about everything that was wrong in this world, so that I could grow up to take the staff and be that person that they can also get inspiration from: becoming an individual that can promote and present solutions, because we’re all just too fed up to hear about the same problems and complains instead of realizing that through understanding the problem, we can and become aware of how we can make things work for everyone.

And for artists who I see are quite a lot within the realm of social-change and activism, thank you for your inspiration as well because sometimes one can get ‘lost’ in a sea of carelessness and hopelessness about being able to genuinely do any meaningful change in this world, but through our very own words, through the way we live and create, how we interact with others we can become the point of change that many others can then refer to as the proof of how we can direct our lives to a best for all outcome, which also determines how we live and interact with one another.

This principle of giving to others as I would like to receive begins within us, so let’s give the best we would want for ourselves to each other and through doing that, learning how to honor and truly appreciate our lives, instead of living as enemies in a chronic state of war.

 

Time to ‘be the change we want to see in this world’ for sure, but this will also only be fully possible when people are no longer strapped to their working chairs and fearing not having money the next day, therefore support the Living Income Guaranteed, to provide a guaranteed access to living needs when having no means to get an income, get higher wages in your current job/occupation and never again be ashamed of having to take this support as it is and will be our sheer right to life, to stop the paranoia, the fear and the self-abuse that comes when living in survival mode – we can do much better than this.

We are yet to discover who we all can be and become once that we step outside of the current divide and conquered set-up world-system we have (negligibly) created. It’s about time we join our creative efforts upon that which will ensure each other’s ability to create without worrying about money again, which tampers our creative potential.

 

Happiness does not exist yet, we have to construct it.

 

 

Living Principles

 

Suggested read for an in-depth review of the documentary:

 


377. What is a Real Democracy?

“…for men change their rulers willingly, hoping to better themselves, and this hope induces them to take up arms against him who rules: wherein they are deceived, because they afterwards find by experience they have gone from bad to worse. This follows also on another natural and common necessity, which always causes a new prince to burden those who have submitted to him with his soldiery and with infinite other hardships which he must put upon his new acquisition.” – Niccolò Machiavelli

 

How many times have we criticized a politician or a person in any place of authority for not ‘sticking to their word’ and breaking whichever promise or commitment they said they would live out and apply under their rule as the representation of the people? Many times, in fact it has become the way to present the idea that we are ‘wise enough’ to understand that ‘we are being duped’ and how this is all ‘being done unto us’ without realizing that in this victimized state one establishes the immediate denial of self-responsibility and inverts it into a point of blame as if they had some godly powers to solve this reality’s problems, which are in fact created individually by each one of us.

 

See how we have conferred and justified this gigantic responsibility of solving the world’s problems to a few individuals that we believe that we are doing a favor to by voting for them to take a position of god/authority over everything and everyone in a particular nation or institution. Within this, we believe that anything that they do wrong is then a point of abuse and we have the right to despise and ask them to ‘pay for their crimes against humanity.’ essentially going from the initial ‘love’ as expectations of change, progress and honesty to ‘hate’ as the disillusion and disappointment that emerges when something or someone doesn’t meet our expectations – but:

Why and How are we expecting, waiting, wanting others to do the work that we all should do as a matter of self-integrity and responsibility?

 

Unless we understand this, we will continue ‘fighting the powers that be’ and believing that ‘a change of powers’ is what’s required in this world, instead of realizing that the way to dissolve any form of abuse is to dissolve the illusion of such power and its structural legitimized form through only voting in ‘democratic elections’ to choose our leaders, without even questioning why such positions in society exist.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ever criticize, denigrate, point fingers at and call the people that are in positions of ‘power’ out as in governments or corporations, heads of institutions for not ‘sticking to their word’ and their oath to contribute to everyone’s well being, without realizing that the sheer contract they are signing up for as a ‘position of power’ is already in itself an imposition of a position that creates abuse – because for some to be ‘on top’ some must be ‘below’ – and as such a public consent and permission to rule over others, which is in itself a violation of the law of life in equality since there can be no ‘higher ranks’ in the physicality that we all exist as in reality, there is no ‘hierarchy’ within who we are as human beings of flesh and bones and as such, all of the formation of the hierarchical structures exists only within who we are and have become in and as the mind

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to point fingers at, criticize, blame, denigrate or call names to the people in ‘power’ that didn’t stick to their promises through for example a political campaign and in fact end up doing the exact opposite of what they had promised, not realizing that the position of power in itself is deception and a point of abuse with public consent, and how once the contract is signed, the position of allowing one individual to have the ultimate say upon millions of lives while being a collectively accepted delusion that we have only learned how to complain about, instead of realizing that for genuine change in this world, we have to stop ceasing to exist within the belief that we can only progress as humanity if we have a good president/ good people in authority and within that, confiding our self responsibility to one/a few individuals

I realize that the solutions to the problems we face are the outflows of what we have done and/or neglected to do at an individual level.

I realize there is no way in which one or a few individuals can solve the inherent problems within the system that is not only existing as the ‘power structure’ and ‘hierarchical orders’ we have accepted and allowed to exist as ruling powers in our societies, but it is existent within each one of us, individually the moment that we believe that our lives are in the hands of those in governments/positions of power, no different to how we had believed in a god to be taken care of each one of us and delegating all responsibility to a ‘higher power/higher being’ to solve the problems that we individually create and consequent every single day of our lives.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that I have criticized presidents and people in power for ‘not sticking to their promises’ of what they said they would do and in the end didn’t do, without realizing that I have done exactly the same when saying that I will do/say/act on/change something and eventually don’t do it, wherein my situation is then no different to any other ‘person in power’ that one has placed any form of trust and expectancy upon to ‘do the work for us’ as if it was Their responsibility to take care of our own personal lives, which has never been in fact so because it Shouldn’t be that way to begin with.

I realize that the only way that we will be able to properly function as society is when the idea of something or someone having ‘more power’ than the rest ceases to exist, because then we will no longer be able to point fingers at/ blame/ justify our own abdication of responsibility, but will have to actually take care of our own lives, ourselves as it always should have been.

 

I forgive myself that I haven’t accepted and allowed myself to realize that the existence of ‘power’ defined through a hierarchical structure in society is the acceptance of abuse in a legitimate way, because not even through so-called democratic processes can we confer all our responsibility to one single individual we directly vote on, and as such the real meaning of democracy is not understood yet – 

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define and think of Democracy as yet another electoral process only implying ‘one man, one vote’ to get one individual in a position of power as in government/ directive positions of authority, without realizing that Democracy as the actual Power of The People is in fact the individual ability to respond and take care of our own lives in the consideration of what is best for all, wherein ‘power’ only means the ability to move, to direct, to  operate and function as a living organism that we are as society, wherein each one of us becomes one single cell that is equally important and equally relevant within the functioning of the whole as the social organism we are.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself for having ever accepted the idea of any individual being ‘superior’ or ‘inferior’ to myself according to the hierarchical structure that exists at an unconscious level in each one of us, wherein the foundation of our current social, economic and political systems resides, where we haven’t yet realized how these structures exist only for the sake of keeping control through fear,  and allowing ourselves to be directed with the excuse of ‘knowing better’ on how to direct entire populations through politics, economics, education, media – just because we have accepted and allowed ourselves to abdicate our responsibility to our own lives and along with this, be misinformed, uneducated and believe ourselves to be powerless to know how the system operates, to learn the necessary practical knowledge to implement an equally-empowered structural organization in society, because we simply accepted the fact that there were only a few individuals that were meant to be educated in specialized elite schools to become our leaders, and the rest to become followers and as such, having little to no access to the information and support to develop the ability of self-leadership and self-governance.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ever take a person in power’s position as real and personal, meaning making of the individual an actual evil, bad, mean, greedy, psychopathic person, without realizing that every time that I also do not act according to what I say I would do and live by, every time that I am moved by self interest to satisfy an experience in the mind instead of doing that which supports me as what is best for all, whenever I expect others to take responsibility for what I see is my responsibility to take care of it, I am living out the exact same patterns that any person in any position of power stands in, because we are all human beings and all that is different is the context in which they exist – yet myself at an individual level contributes and represents that one point that makes the nature of this entire system as self-abuse, which is thus reflecting back to ourselves who we really are in our own minds and personal lives.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that some other individuals have to be specialized in understanding how ‘the system operates’ and that I had nothing to do with it, but that one pays them through taxes to ‘do the work’ that we are and have been unable to conduct ourselves, within this using the saying of ‘give as you would like to receive’ in self interest to abdicate self responsibility, giving money  in taxes, giving our ‘vote’ as preference for one or few individuals to do the work that we haven’t realized must be our own individual point of self-responsibility to conduct ourselves by in our lives.

I realize that the equation we have done with money is of the absolute legitimization of corruption and abuse within the existence of money itself, which makes the act of ‘corruption’ just a redundancy that is tacitly implied in the existence of our monetary systems, our value systems and world-system in itself wherein hierarchy as power is no different to the power that we currently have given to money: it only exists as the collective agreement to abuse and have power over reality with no direct reference to physical reality.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the power of people in ruling and leading classes within our social hierarchical structures was legitimate because of being voted by the people, without realizing that this power is no different to the consent we believe we have given to the creation of money as debt, in essence as a pyramid scheme represented as our hierarchical structure wherein we have always bowed down to those that ‘have more/ are in positions of power’ and within that establishing the acceptance of inferiority and self victimization.

I realize that we have become subject to and trapped in our own beliefs of inferiority and ‘power-lessness’ without seeing and realizing that such power we ‘gave away’ is not real in fact since there is no physical power transferred but in the form of money – currently being a collective acceptance of abuse over life – and in the form of not doing and not taking care of everything that will be ‘taken care of’ by those that we vote for to be doing what we have abdicated ourselves to do.

 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify the ‘ills’ and ‘problems’ in society through saying that ‘it is because of the government/ it’s a systematic problem’ without realizing that this it is in fact what we accept and allow to exist in our own minds individually, which then becomes a problem that is hard to solve by one or a few individuals or an entire political structure, if the individual responsibility within it all is not realized.

 

When and as I see myself denigrating, backchatting, cursing at or having thoughts about what a political or corporate leader is doing as a consequential outflow to ourselves in our society, I stop and I breathe – I realize that each individual human being in this world being in a ‘leadership’ position represents the abdication of our self-responsibility and actual political power as the direction of our own lives that we have neglected to take care of, and as such making it a few individual’s responsibility within a structure of disempowerment as hierarchical orders in society.

I realize that whatever ‘they do’ is only an outflow of the inequality in responsibility that we have created, accepted and allowed in our world – therefore instead of blaming and judging and opposing others, I take the point back to myself and ensure that I begin living by the principles of self-honesty, beginning with actually doing what I say I will do, considering what is best for all at all times and in that seeing that my responsibility to my own life to live in integrity and self-honesty means the foundation of a new society that we can create individual by individual until we realize that we do not require one single individual to be in such a position of ‘power’ and leadership, but instead become the embodiment of self-governance, self-leadership, having the ability to always decide and do what is best for all and as such, no more hierarchical powers to conduct our society will be required, for we will be living the actual ‘power of the people’ as a genuine Democracy that exists at an individual level of living self-responsibility.

 

I commit myself to realize that genuine democracy is not ‘choosing a person to be in office through one man, one vote’ only, realizing that such vote is not merely crossing a paper in election day, but actually becoming a self-responsible individual that understands that each one of us taking responsibility for ourselves creates a genuine democracy as each  individual stands in self-honesty and considering at all times what is best for all.

 

A real democracy is the individual ability to direct oneself in self-responsibility and consideration of equal rights and equal responsibilities,  living together in a way that is best for all. The real ‘power of the people’ cannot be represented, it must be individually and practically lived and applied.

342.Monetary System in Equal Money Capitalism

Equal Money advocates a Monetary Reform. Money will cease to exist the way it does now, Economy will cease to exist as an attempt to legitimize a system created for means of control and abuse. Money can instead become a tool to redeem our past, and ensure that we collectively agree to make it our all access pass to that which we require to live – it is a tool, we redefine it to support the Living Principle of what is Best for All.

Problem                                                                

  • We have different forms of values imposed onto things, all of them representing all the value schemes that we have created in order to dismiss the common sense fact that life is equal in everything and everyone, yet we have created use values, exchange values and the intrinsic ‘value’  which is supposed to be part of the object or material in itself according to, once again, a scheme of values that we accepted and allowed without a question. Who decided that Gold was meant to be the Standard again?Who decided what type of materials would become our Key Commodities?  Our ‘Monetary Authorities’ wherein no democratic decision was taken into consideration to do this. What does this mean? That the price tags that we currently see are the result of historical processes that we are dragging along as ‘how things are and have always been’ that have no foundation whatsoever on a physical and inherent quality of things and understanding of life in itself.

 

  • Therefore, it is ourselves as the Human Race that have schemed the world system – the responsibility lies within each one just by using money. You and I currently use this faith and belief-system item as Money that we ‘carry around’ as our  ‘all access pass’  to get what we need. Even if it is a ‘fiction’ in itself, we have made it quite real the moment that we accept and allow the fact that only with these papers, coins, digits on a screen one can have an assured means to live.Till this day it dawns me how the entirety of who I am and how I live is defined by the amount of money I have in my pocket and/or bank account, that is my ‘security’ and my ‘freedom,’ which is limited to all of us to say the least, otherwise we would not be here advocating to review the fallacies that we have built as our prison of words and values in this world.

 

A bit of History

Before World War I the Global Financial System was organized around the International Gold Standard System. In theory the Gold Standard was an Exchange Rate Regime between the countries that were already the main participants in the global trade scheme.  The Gold Standard was implemented to:

1. Maintain exchange rate stability – meaning that currency and metal would not change

2. Maintain convertibility between domestic currency (yen, dollar, pound)  and a predetermined amount of gold. 

It was actually in 1717 that Newton shifts the previously placed Silver Standard in 1696 by John Locke by arguing that Gold is ‘better.’ From 1867 on, Gold became a standard for France, Germany, US and Japan. This means that the adoption of this Standard became a form of ‘membership’ between countries that would become major economies. The GS  set the ‘tonality’ of who would become major potencies around the world. The coercion point thus became the introduction of this Gold Standard to other countries which is what formed the Financial Integration between these nations, it became like ‘the Gold Club.’

Then came the World Wars where inflation, hyperinflation, competition and chaos reigned on the global map. The destabilization lead to further attempts to reinstate the GS were made to no avail i.e., Bretton Woods System in the 1940’s by the UK and US  until in the 1970’s when after the glut of dollars came a dollar depreciation, the effects of the War in Vietnam and the sinking Market Value that lead Nixon to abandon the Gold Standard. From 1971 and on we’ve  had Floating Fiat currencies –this means a definitive dissolution  of the ‘gold club’ encouraging major economies then to move away from the Golden Standard and instead, these proposing the currencies themselves to become the new ‘standard’ for trade – hence minor economies pegged to major currencies like the Dollar and the Euro.

Where is the coercion as the imposition of all of these changes in the Monetary system existent at the moment? Through International Organizations like the IMF, the World Bank, Agreements like the GATT under which small economies integrated themselves within this ‘liberalization of trade.’ In 1994, all the ‘big economies’ left the GATT and create the WTO – World Trade Organization which included all the countries with developed economies. This is where the ‘rules of the mob’ are set wherein if countries wanted to become part of the ‘Great Leagues’ in the international market, they would have to comply to the rules set in this organization, and that’s what we currently have: a membership within the WTO means one is  willing to play according to the rules that those at the top of these International Organizations and Institutions that decide is ‘best for their interests’

 

  • We certainly have only complied to all of this monetary history since the17th century and every time we use money, we legitimize this story and process of adopting our monetary system ‘as real.’  We directly comply to this imposed mechanism that certainly serves Imperialistic moves to benefit only a few.

 

  • The question is: can we see any ‘Value of Life’ regarded in all of this data? There is non, we have always been subject to ‘greater decisions’ that we’ve complied to as godly rules without a question.

 

  • Once again, who decided that ‘Gold’ was the standard? And even more so now: what is ‘backing up’ our Fiat Currencies? Nothing but sheer ‘agreements’ where no physical and mathematical equations of this reality are taken into consideration to ensure that everyone has access to what we require to live. This is how we can say there is No Common Sense in our Monetary System, it is all been a belief system and illusion.

Solution                                                              

    Can one just create money out of nothing – isn’t that what is causing the current money-crisis?

    Indeed. What we’re proposing is a fiat money-system. Meaning: money that is created and issued by a central institution directly and declared as Legal.

    With regards to the current money-crisis, one must understand: it is not due to money being created ‘out of nothing’ – but solely due to the procedure according to which all money being issued has the nature of a loan with interest.

    This is completely against what we’re suggesting: because the point of having money is not to use it to exploit people for power and control, but to make life easier -which is by the way what children in schools are being taught about why money exists. Unfortunately they’re not being told the whole story.

    Money will be a tool at your disposal that gives you access to living-recourse. It will not be a ‘loan’ – because you have a right to it: it is your money.

 

  • The value of money in a New Monetary System in Equal Money will hold the Value of Life as its one and only Standard – this is what will determine the equal distribution of resources to everyone wherein Money will become a way to administrate this distribution in  orderly manner. Money is necessary to coordinate the distribution and management of our resources so that even if everyone will be granted access to them, any form of abuse is prevented and measurable by using Money as a counting tool based upon the physical resources that will be produced and commercialized.

 

  • Money will stop existing as an Elitist and Mob-Mentality Pyramidal scheme that uses coercive means to ‘grant power’ to some and leave the majority out of the game.  Instead our International Institutions will have to adopt the understanding of this new  living principle wherein Money Equals Life in Equality . This means that organizations like the IMF, World Bank would have to adopt this measure or simply cease to exist, because any denial to the new value system would imply a desire to continue exerting means to have power and control over nations, and that is unacceptable.  We will have the ability to decide How our International Organizations are formed and if they are even necessary in a world order where Life will be the guiding principle between Nations and individuals.

 

  • Because all we have known thus far as humanity is that Money grants you access to obtain what we require to live, we will Still use Money to regulate our behavior with our access to buy and consume what we require in order to understand in a practical common sensical manner how spending our money on that which enables us to live is the priority, and how the rest of the products that were manufactured for mere profit-making purposes will have to be rebuked from having a place in our markets. Equal Money means Dignifying Life at all levels which implies that the use of our resources will be equal to the Value of Life we will be guarding at all times – we won’t use the Earth’s resources and the People’s Labor/ Participation just to ‘make money’ because that won’t be a possibility in a world where there is no ability to ‘make more money’ as a form of abuse, but instead every action and decision we make will be based on the integration of the living Principle of Life in Equality: What is Best for All.

 

  • Politics will still be the means to implement this New Monetary System through Direct Democracy- this is because we act according to the premise of using what is already functional as our system to walk the necessary transitional process to redefine our political structures to an equalized self responsible organization of individuals, wherein money also becomes a mere ‘assured access’ to what which we will realize and understand as a living responsibility and right to our lives – politics is the only way we can ensure that each person’s vote counts: we take responsibility for this history lived so far and walk it toward a new outcome where we can eventually go past the schemes, models and concepts that once stood as the form of power and control upon life.

 

What will the Equal Money look like – how will it work?

Most practical would be to have all the money be digital – because then it can simply be send from one (or many) central point(s) to all the individual accounts. Which would then require digital payment technology at every shop/store/warehouse and chip-technology. So it will be very similar to the payment systems that are already in place.
The type of biometric identification depends on the technological advancements that are most suitable for authentication purposes. The current biometric state of the art technology includes DNA readers, palm and fingerprint recognition, and iris scanners. Embedded technology is also a possibility.
The point here is to have a digital system which can also be implemented through using bankcards which already have a chip in it for further security.
Another reason why digital money is preferable – is that just as easy as the money is created, it must be able to be deleted. This would happen as soon as the money is used at the first payment. When I for instance buy myself a pair of shoes, that amount of money that I’ve just spent will not be ‘transferred’ from my account to the account of the store, it will instead be deleted from my account. Because remember: the purpose of the money is to make sure there is equal access for all to basic living-resources. Therefore once the money has served its purpose, there is no reason anymore for it to exist.

Rewards                                                  

  • A New Monetary System that is actually agreed upon through democratic means an stands within the principle of Life in Equality means that there won’t exist International Organizations and Institutions dedicated to ‘Balancing Powers’ in the global scheme of ‘major’ and ‘minor’ economies, because all nations of the world would have to reside within the same common understanding that a new value system in the form of a currency will have to be adopted by all to equalize this new understanding of our relationships toward that which we all require to satisfy our living conditions in the best possible manner which means quality, sustainability, security and coordination to ensure Equality is the principle that guides our lives.

 

  • No instability, no more hostility, no ‘beg to thy neighbor’ and cut-throat agreements to maintain a disparity in hierarchical systems at a domestic and international level. The only union that will exist is the realization that the outcome of this new value-system – whichever numbers it takes – will be to ensure that every single Nation is having an equal-stand at an International Level. The same goes for each individual having the necessary means to live by virtue of their work and contribution to the system.  This will eventually change within the context of Equal Money System – yet within Equal Money Capitalism, our work is our access to that which we require to live.

 

  • No more will certain nations step up as hegemons behind International Organizations that control the value of money at a global scale –  instead every single nation will be guarding the same principle where people’s well being, life’s well being is the core point of focus – no more wars and offense-defense balances, war mongering processes or economic sanctions being schemed for imperialistic means, instead every nation will ensure that their organization is acting in accordance to a global understanding and agreement to generate a New Monetary system that establishes the foundation for an Economy based on the Value of Life itself: ensuring that every individual and nation is equally benefited with an equal distribution and availability of goods and services, as well as generating the best living conditions as our environment to live in.

320. Economic Power in Equal Money Capitalism

It is a blatant imaginary system imposed onto physical reality, that’s what money is: a mind creation that represents the relationships of power and abuse that we created in order to have more than others, and use others to do the work for ourselves. This is a mind problem that has become our current economic system backed up by the necessary political powers to make it ‘real,’ when it is absolutely not so. It is our creation, and it is our responsibility.

Problem                                                                             

What is economic power?

The power wielded by a businessmen is the power to create wealth through production, and trade. In regards to trade in a free market, a businessmen can only entice you to do his bidding, by offering you something that you judge to be of equal or greater value in return as judged of your own free-will. His power is the power of persuasion: the power to appeal to one’s mind. Such power is derived by creating value–such as when Bill Gates (Microsoft) creates better products at lower prices. The businessman’s spiritual tool is the mind–and its material counterpart–is the dollar.

http://capitalism.org/category/power/

 

A fundamental building block in our consciousness is the notion of and belief of power endowed to money and the ‘benefits’ that come with it, which makes of money and end in itself and with this, Power became a disease in the human mind wherein our ‘creative powers’ have built an entire fixed system where by ‘the way the system works’ we justify  abuse, control, subjugation  and the ability to decide upon others according to and directly proportional to the amount of wealth/ economic power individuals have, created by the necessary deceptive means as implied in the quote above.

I quote Bernard Poolman:

 

“There is No Morality. There is No Self Honesty. There’s No Consideration. There can be No Trust. You have No Integrity. There Can be No Integrity with the Current System. You Cannot Live within the System, with Integrity. It is Not Possible. You Have to Change it to What is Best for All, but…Will you? Not Really, because – you Can’t: “you’ll ‘Lose too much’”, you See – because you’re already Possessed too much. That’s the Demon within you – your Possessions: “I am Possessed by what I have, I can’t give it up – therefore, I can’t Share, I can’t Give as I would like to Receive, because I already HAVE.” – Encryption, encryption, encryption…Backchat, backchat, backchat – Self-Righteous, Justified.”

 

  • This belief and justification of such Economic Power decides who stands at the top of the pyramid, who lives and who dies, who must live a life enslaved to a job to ‘make enough money to go by’ and who will be more focused on how to capitalize such wealth, which is in essence the disease of greed and power.

 

  • Money was created to fix a very simple problem: how to create a medium of exchange that could give a value to two or more different things that were going to be traded, which is also entailing the requirement for a unit of account. Money is a convenient tool to exchange goods and services in a common unit.  The exchange rate came into the picture later on, which is in itself a relationship of Power between Nations and ‘monetary authorities,’ which is the hegemonic structure where abuse was installed.

 

  • It is a Store of Value which enabled individuals to convert perishables into more durable goods – right, but it became a lot more than this since the amount of ‘durability’ that wealth has is more than just a mere practical form to secure your earnings, it has become an addiction in itself where earning more, having more, wanting more has overruled any form of common sense in an individual that ‘tastes the glory of power’ and becomes entrenched with the right of ‘pursuing happiness’ to do so, which is openly acceptable in our dog-eat-dog capitalist ideology and world.  So ‘Storing Value’ as money transformed into ourselves becoming and embodying such Amount of money that we have and call it ‘our wealth,’ our ‘power’ and justify it as our Lifestyle and Right to Be Happy.

 

  • These are the very basic functions you’ll find Money exists for – so, how was it become our God  and who has decided that only a few could really enjoy the ‘powers’ of it when having more than enough to do those basic trading operations? Well, it became a way to Control and Accumulate Money in itself as a form of Power/Control over others, this is through our own accepted and allowed ‘Authorities’ that are able to decide the Value of a currency in comparison to others, which reflects what we currently call our first and third world countries, there’s also the process of fixing prices and the rest has been explained where these regulations provide all the necessary legal means to make the most profit without any form of responsibility toward everyone involved in the creation of such Money as Value that became a Power/wealth in itself for some.

 

  • By becoming a monetary authority, states can manipulate “the Forces” that determine price levels and international capital flows. This is what creates the ever justifiable ‘monetary policy autonomy’ between nations, and this is what moves the world as we know it. A single authoritarian decision to create value systems that benefit some, neglect the majority and is perpetuated through legal means – this is where such ‘Economic Power’ resides, Not the Individual.

 

  • The greater concentration of this power, the better and our hegemonic system flourishes every time that we buy and consume from the Multinational Corporations and Enterprises that have become the real hegemons in our world system. It is this desire for Power that currently sets the ‘regulations’ and policies that are tailored to suit the interests of those that already hold the power, this is thus not a problem of ‘the System’ only, but of Human Nature existing in such cynical manner where No regard toward Life is existent, but we all Feed the machine through our very own desires to also have such power, so there’s no one to blame for other than our very own mind-mechanisms that have created money as a means to abuse in itself.

 

  • The main problem is conceiving this power as ‘good’ and ‘great’ and ‘your right to property, liberty and happiness’ instead of looking at the consequences that such mechanisms are creating in our world. The imposition of currency values as Exchange Rates determine which country dominates another through trade where the motive is self interest and greed, why has there been no motivation to create a single currency? Because there would be no benefit in that, there would be no acceptance from equal currencies to accept another country’s capital to buy cheaper labor to then ship the goods to be sold at a higher price abroad, isn’t it? Slavery, famine, homelessness, debts, lack of health, subordination, immigration, and any other form of abuse and slavery is accepted and allowed by this hegemonic system we’ve all complied to, a single VALUE we believe is real and ‘just’ by the means it was proclaimed to be so.

 

So, how to Equalize this Economic Power within our current system?

 

Solution                                                                             

  • The key begins within the individual realizing that this current system of  abuse called our monetary policies, economic system and the executives behind it must cease to exist as they do now, that implies a reform through political means – democracy is the way to implement a new political and economical system that actually restores to money its very basic functionality of being a medium of exchange, a unit of value and account – and that it serves to enable people to buy goods and services according to the amount of money earned through the labor they support the system with, it is thus a giving and receiving motion wherein there will be no ability to abuse, since Equal Profit share means that no matter what position you are in within the system, you get equal amount of money from the total profit made by the business/ corporation, and the same in any other governmental dependency, charge, service that you give outside of a main organization.

 

  • The Value of Money will be life in itself, no longer someone’s desire to win more in Wall Street or exploiting ‘Free Trade’ in third world countries. It is and will be a functional tool that enables us to distribute life to all people that contribute to participate in the system, co-creating a sustainability that everyone can benefit from.

 

  • One currency would be the most practical of course since our Exchange Rate Regimes are only created out of the relationships of power an inequality that are currently accepted in our world-system. However we will only see how Currency exists –  for further reference on currency, read:  ¿What will be the Currency in an Equal Money System?

 

 

 

Rewards                                                                             

  • The definition of Wealth will be an actual integrity of man willing to give and receive in equality, where money is the meaning of a generosity and appreciation for what we do to maintain and sustain a world system that is supporting each other equally. Appreciation means a-without price-  it is recognizing the value of our own work for the benefit and convenience it provides for us all.

 

  • There will be no more concentration of power since all profit will have to be immediately distributed to everyone in an equal manner. This is the end of corporatocracies, poverty, the elite, wars, imperialism, the have not’s, the middle class and third world countries – everyone will have access to the most dignified manner of living we are able to construct/ build and create for each other, as Equals.

 

  • Any desire for greed or power would be treated as a mental disease which will surely a security measure o ensure no human being is every again wanting to hoard any form of ‘economic power’ in the name of self interest.

318. Government in Equal Money Capitalism

Why has no Government ever been based on Equality ensuring that the Right to Life and Managing Responsibilities  of all individuals is in fact a guaranteed from birth to death?

How is it that no Government has identified the right to have more wealth than others as a violation to basic human rights when someone’s wealth implies someone’s lack?

What is the purpose of government under capitalism?

It is to protect rights that governments are instituted. A proper government’s only responsibility is to protect the rights of the individual, by banning the initiation of force, thus making all relations between men peaceful, i.e., free from the threat of violence and fraud.

The fact is that the government is not the one actually ruling how things actually work in reality, that’s why we are essentially blaming and voting for mere characters with certain traits that may resonate with your ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’ side, which is nothing but tradition and culture in the shape of family preferences transferred from generation to generation within the belief that your right to vote and decide ‘who’ governs us is the highest civil responsibility you’ll ever hold – it is a fallacy, all of it, and this is one of the reasons we can all agree that we have been disenchanted from believing that our government truly cares for us. But,  we haven’t even considered what is dead obvious now, which is that it has actually never done so, otherwise we would not be subsumed in the worst type of crisis since the invention of the stock markets and banks as institutions with federal powers to create money as they will.

 

No matter what the name of the regime is, no current formally known ‘democracy’ or ‘autocracy’ exists, because corporations are the ones holding the power by legal means which some have labeled ‘Corporatocracy’ or Capitalism turned into a Corporate Imperialism which is in fact the reigning power of the Anonymity for purposes of liability in our economic system, wherein, without the government’s regulation,  no physical person is in fact being held accountable for the crimes against humanity and the Earth’s Resources, Flora and Fauna that are being conducted under the fictional entity mask that a Corporation represents. They are pursuing their own right to happiness, which means making profit in whichever way and means they can, which is the purpose of the organism in itself – this is where Money is valued Upon Life.

 

Without governmental intervention according to in fact guarding people’s rights, there is obvious abuse, and this is what we are witnessing in this world wherein governments have no say upon a corporation’s interests to usurp people’s properties with the license of being a bank, or water resources under the banner of free trade or hire slave labor overseas which can be excused with some honorable means such as ‘providing jobs in the third world’ or bringing some freedom and democracy to workers that are paid cents an hour for items that will be sold thousand times more in the first world.

The question is: why are we still holding such high standards about choosing a government when there is clearly no defense and protection to basic living rights, nor any real accounting system for each other’s responsibility? Because even taxes are not equally demanded  and all those great subsidies given to corporations to come and do business in our territories is like building a trench for the enemy to come and kill our people and thanking them for such glorious act.

 

A president does not determine the distribution of goods and services and has limited to no-control over monetary policy, price policy and apparently to some extent the bill of employment – yes we all hear our presidents promising to ‘generate jobs’ to no avail – but as we know and in the example we’re studying here as CapitalismUS as the representation of a Corporate Capitalistic System, these are all interests controlled by ‘The Federal Reserve’ which is an organism that is supposed to be serving both gods, the public/government and the private/corporate sector, apparently the role of the Government is to ‘oversee’ and regulate the private sector’s activities, which we can all attest to, is not happening at all. This is the key-organism wherein magic takes place, wherein money is then brewed and stored according to the corporation’s interests and governments are being bribed to sponsor that or even bail them out with public taxes.

Suggest to watch:

 

  • In the previous entries of this blog, we’ve walked through the mechanisms in which Rights are currently being violated by the same laws that we are currently governed by, which is corporate law that makes our current capitalism a rapacious legal act that we are all complying to, and having apparently no means to stop because that would in fact mean we have to Stop ourselves as individuals from accepting and allowing the current system as is:

 

    • “We have created the corporation – and it’s regulated in our law that the main purpose of the corporation is to profit; how can we then in anyway blame the corporations for destroying our world? I mean – we have created them! The corporation is but a dead carcass – a corpus – that we’ve fueled with our money and sent on a rampage in this world to make even more money. As such – no one can stop the corporations – because the corporations are driven by our laws, and are created through political decisions – and funded by the normal guy that saves his pension in some type of a stock (stuck?); as such no activism in the world will stop this beast as the corporation – because the corporation is us in-fact.”
      –  Day 5: The Corpus Of Terror Law’s Journey To Life 

 

  • It is in fact so that a corporation means an artificial body for judiciary means that represents our real current government, because the government in fact has no real regulation on the Economy due to its  – read rigged –“unpredictability.” The government is more suited to go to wage war, find the right excuses to promote liberty and democracy oversees, hoard other country’s resources and have an extensive Foreign Policy than guarding their own Country’s well being – yes, this is about America specifically wherein it is infamous that there’s so many ‘prestigious’ economic schools there and none of them – or around the world – has ever developed a political and economic model that works for every single person equally.

 

  • Who or what is in fact ‘in power’ nowadays? It should be a mandatory point to understand that it is not the government, not the congress, not your basic constitutions that proclaim all men are equal, but the Corporations that exercise bribery with politicians that can’t serve both gods, money or the people, money wins and people as the majority are the ones that suffer from such greed, because they’ll accordingly generate the necessary Laws to benefit the Corporations’ interests and promote ideals of Progress and ‘Job Creation’ but never specifying at the expense of how many lives and what extent of suffering such ‘Right to Life’ in fact implies.

Solution                                                                             

  • The ultimate Power that will ever Exist is always Equality, Equal Distribution of Power which means that the Government won’t be an all mighty entity that decides for the people – no. It will be an organism to regulate, administrate, oversee and ensure  that the best ways to achieve collective goals for the benefit of the majority are implemented  for the people and by the people. We will explore further on this point when getting to Democracy.
  • Each individual will have to become a political actor in terms of deciding what are the best ways to ensure that our rights and responsibilities are properly administrated. Within this as a Current solution: All of us that have enough resources and education to promote this information must ensure that it reaches to the majority of the people, that it is understood to what level such delegation of power to our government-and ultimately to corporations- is in fact our own self-created demise due to abdicating our political responsibility, violated currently not by a single organism, but by every one of us collectively accepting our current governments, corporations and institutions to guard our best interests on a shelf while creating laws that benefit the minority.
  • This means that it is each individual’s responsibility to ensure that a new Political force stems from the realization that: we can only Thrive in Equality, we can only collectively ensure we never again leave our lives at the hands of a few individuals that are Not caring about Life, but only profit/ money/ power and generating More wealth at the expense of the actual worker and laborer that is generating such profit for a ghastly minority that benefits from it.

 

  • The Government as an administrative force by legal means endowed by every person through democratic means will ensure that policies like Equal Profit Share is implemented as a way to cap the current ongoing monstrous imperialistic expansion that corporations are deploying, it is the power of the individual collectively associated as a pacific force through legal and political means that can and Must decide what are the best interests of the populace, our interests, our lives.

Watch:

Wealth Inequality in America

 

  • So, if our Right to Life is currently defined by the amount of money we have, but Money is not available for every person in Equality, then once again looking at the definition of ‘Government’ within the context of Capitalism  as written in the Problem section, the Government’s Responsibility would be to in fact protect this right to have a dignified living by regulating the processes that private and public businesses and corporations  have

  • ROLE OF GOVERNMENT
    The government will still play a role to provide everyone with their basic human rights such as healthcare, education, housing, sanitation, roads, employment etc. So – the government will fund these points through taxes. The only tax that will exist are the value-added tax on products – this will be part of the labeling of products – where it’ll show the percentage of the price that goes to tax and for what the tax will be used. There will be no need for an income tax to redistribute income in a fair way – because income will be distributed fairly from the get-go.

     

    UNEMPLOYMENT / FULL EMPLOYMENT
    If unemployment exists – the government must step in to create jobs where possible – because employment is a basic human right.

     

    OVERSIGHT IN EMC
    Within EMC the principle will be that everything is to work in harmony with each other. Therefore – dependent on which level a point of disharmony occurs, it will be addressed accordingly. If there is a worker within a company that is not acting in a way that is best for the company as a whole – this point will be addressed by a tribunal within the company. If it is an entire company that is behaving in a disharmonious way – it will be addressed by government departments.

316. Rights are NOT Guaranteed to be Successful

307. CapitalismUS: Pursuit of Happiness

 

Problem                                                                             

What one can realize from our current power structures, is that our rights have been outlined and set in special charters and constitutions simply because we have always lived in separation from what always should have been ‘inalienable rights’ to live in the most dignified manner as a living quality available and given to all human beings. The reason why this is not so is because granting each other Equal Power disables the opportunity for some to have More.

Within this context, it is impossible to not look at the Mind in itself and the mechanisms in which Consciousness as the Mind resides within and as ourselves, as ‘who we are’ and what we have become, which is the current Truth of our Human Nature guided and directed by the mind: we seek to have the most because that’s Energy’s Nature and within such mind-possessed human nature, we have created the current world wherein we can set the most beautiful words on paper to live by, but in reality, do the exact opposite.

Capitalism as our current living-philosophy is not an ‘alien system’ imposed by a few mean people, it is precisely the exact reflection of who we are and how we function within our minds as a system driven to have the most which is why we say we live in a constant survival mode and within this, have externalized this basic energetic systems that our entire mind functions as and that we have conditioned ourselves as humans to believe that ‘there’s never enough for all,’ or that we ‘can’t be equal/ are not equal because some will always have more than others.’ But the physical Equality and Oneness as the constitution of who and what we are made of is not considered within these constitutional ‘Rights,’ because there was no Understanding of Life in Equality and Oneness as who and what we really are.

This is one of the pivotal differences that are presented within the Equal Money System and Equal Money Capitalism that have not existed before in our civilization as an overall solution to the disparity, discrimination and polarization we’ve lived in until now. Why is this? Because those that were able to gain the power through the use of Force then settled the Rights to be able to have the say of what our right is and if it is able to be conducted to a physical application or not.

A perfect example of such gaps or holes in Capitalism’s philosophy is the following:

From Capitalism.org

Are rights guarantees to the success of actions?

All rights are rights to freedom of action. That is, the right to those actions necessary to support ones life — so long as they do not violate the rights of others. Keep in mind that rights are not guarantees that those actions will always be successful. Thus, the right to pursue happiness, does not necessarily mean achievement — it only means one is free to pursue what one thinks will make one happy.

http://capitalism.org/category/rights/

 

This is where every single great idea falls in this world: it is not a Guarantee, it is not meant to function for all and is excused by people saying ‘not everyone will achieve it,’ ‘not everyone will make it’ and that’s where all sorts of theories about ‘the Survival of the Fittest’ come forth and where competition to have the ability to live comes to play as a matter of living or dying, not as an ‘incentive’ to become better at what you do. This is the deliberate encrypted deception we have accepted and allowed in our world, wherein we believe we have to ‘strive’ to make a living and have to ‘fight for our right’ to ‘be free’ and ‘self-determined.’

If this  does not open our eyes to see the brutality of our self-created cage and deception, we will continue to accept scarcity, discrimination, violence, hatred, competition for more, greed, deliberate marginalization between humans as some having the ability to have More than others and as such, control and dominate them to keep building the desired grandeur that Money currently enables some to build and create.

 

How is it that Rights are Not Guarantees to be Successful at all times?

Because of how our current economic and monetary system function and exist, there is No Equality considered in such model, specially capitalism where it is certainly a vile Monopoly game where you are doomed to play the slave from birth or inherit your family’s wealth without anyone having the ability to question this non sense and disparity, because ‘that’s how the world has worked so far.’

It is absolutely unacceptable to keep believing in such ‘Rights to happiness, to property and to freedom’ if Money determines whether you live or die, it is quite a cynical way to believe we are been guided by these great words that mean the absolute opposite for those subsumed in poverty: doomed and ostracized from having a happy life, enslaved to endless mortgages to own a house, or denied any access to proper shelter and living conditions, and denied any form of freedom to live ‘the way you want’ because Life is Sold, not given as a Living-Right.

 

Solution                                                                             

Our Right goes hand in hand with Our Responsibility to ensure that the system is functional and sustainable to give such freedom, self-determination, right to pursue happiness and use the resources in an Equal Manner without any form of disadvantage or abuse, this is the Only condition in which such Pursuit of Happiness is accessible: if every single being has equal access and support to live it out in their full capacity, wherein it will depend on the individual to achieve it or not, without any form of ‘System limitation’ that prevents them from doing so.

This is also the only way in which we can ensure that we stop seeing Rights as a ‘Paternalist’ measure from ‘The System,’ and instead realize that We Are The System, and that we cannot once again delegate the ‘Power’ to a few institutions to promulgate laws and rights that are tainted by the framework of a Rigged Capitalistic System. Thus, we have to ensure that the right to be Self Determined is redefined as the ability (read power) and consideration to work and participate to ensure that the achievement of collective goals toward a successful outcome is created and established by each one’s participation in the system in an Equal Manner.

This principle is within the understanding that the current crisis we are facing is because we have abdicated our responsibility to make our rights a feasible fact and reality, because it is impossible to only wait for others to ‘make our rights valid’ while accepting inequality as a starting point. This is thus we We have to ensure that all our power structures, our laws, our mindsets are aligned to conceive a reality working  in a symbiotic manner, which is what will create actual freedom in our society, a physical organism that is able gauge and monitor at all times that these fundamental rights to have equal access to work/job/activity to obtain money is at all times available for every single person, and that the sharing of profit for such activity/work is always in accordance to the policies that will ensure each person is equally supported without any exception.

This is the solution that is thus not a matter of a ‘statement’ only, but a living-condition that must be in place in order to ensure that Life is honored in Equality by our Constitutions based on Equality which will define how our Money is created, which will define every single relationship we have toward one another, it is the foundation of an actual Respect for Each Other’s Right to Life once that this Right is ensured to be a living fact by every single being in Equality.

 

You can also read the overall solutions in the previous entry: 315. Rights and Equal Money Capitalism

 

Rewards                                                                             

There  will be no need to ‘seek happiness’ at the expense of others, or of your own strain, effort and suffering to ‘achieve’ any form of financial stability, since your work and your own regular and consistent self-support within a job or profession will determine your ability to be happy, stable, content and have all the tools and means to develop yourself and your living conditions to the utmost degree depending on your own will and determination to do so.

This is precisely what will lead to peace on Earth once that we stop fighting against each other to ‘have more’ or ‘have control over others,’ because such concepts will be understood as the root and cause of the current massive problem we’ve created in our reality. Thus each one’s living-determination will define your own Right to enjoy Life and learn how to actually Live once that we all stop existing in a constant ‘fear of survival’ or fear of being limited by imposed systematic conditions, because it will be Our responsibility to ensure each other’s living stability at all times, since we will all be working to maintain, sustain and generate the desired living conditions not only for oneself, but for everyone equally. This is the condition that we will all be entitled to: a giving and receiving of each other’s right to live without any limitation other than ensuring no harm and no abuse is reproduced by individuals ever again.

The ultimate reward is ensuring that the Right To Life is in fact Lived by every single human being and No More Suffering and Abuse ever takes place, that in itself should suffice to us All.

315. Rights and Equal Money Capitalism

The Right to Life in Equality has never existed, no matter how many constitutions hold the statement “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” we haven’t ever lived as such- WHY and HOW did we get ourselves to this compromised and abusive position? For context, suggest reading:

 

Problem                                                                          

 

From capitalism.org website:

What is the fundamental right?

There is only one fundamental right — the right to life — from which all other rights, including the right to liberty, the right to property and the right to pursue one’s own happiness derive.

Are rights guarantees to the success of actions?

All rights are rights to freedom of action. That is, the right to those actions necessary to support ones life — so long as they do not violate the rights of others. Keep in mind that rights are not guarantees that those actions will always be successful. Thus, the right to pursue happiness, does not necessarily mean achievement — it only means one is free to pursue what one thinks will make one happy.

Pursuit does not mean attainment, though it is a necessary precondition to attaining it. Similarly the right to life, is the right to take those actions necessary to survive, free from the physical compulsion and interference of other men. The right to life does not mean that one can force others to support ones life against their will. [what rights do guarantee is that if your actions are successful, no one may rob your of the results of those actions].

 

We are well aware this is stemming from the old mindset of our lives existing within a constant need to defend and offense from rivals and enemies, an eternal battle that doesn’t only take place between nations, but also between neighbors. This is the platform, the set-up, the ‘default’ explanation of ‘how things are, how things have always been’ wherein one has to‘defend one’s rights/sovereignty at all cost,’ which is not only a Capitalist trait but relative to Politics and Imperialistic tactics throughout human civilization. What has happened in the 20th century is that, these ‘Rights’ were covered with new concepts like ‘Self-Determination’ ‘Freedom,’ ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ that we’ve already explained and democracy used as a noble reason to intervene in foreign countries’ struggles in order to implement a ‘better way of living’ that is tainted by the concepts highlighted above, which is nothing else but an actual form of imperialism for profitable means disguised with a banner of liberty, justice and free will. This is Ayn Rand’s legacy that could excuse the individual’s ‘right to pursue happiness’ at all cost, while keeping the words set in such a way that it truly sounds fair and just, but never specifies it will be possible for All in Equality. This is what we have accepted and allowed thus as an individual or tunnel-vision sight of our reality where dog eats dog as long as ‘I’ can defend my right to WIN.

 

What is it really being defended here as a ‘Right’ in our Capitalist System?

Self Interest as the right to abuse, extort, kill, oppress, exploit and dominate in the name of Power

You can read the previous entries to understand the power that forges our current ‘Rights’ within the current Capitalistic System we’re living in, which certainly overrides any constitutional effort to regulate people’s lives toward a common well being, no matter how many ‘Human Rights’ declarations we have, the world hasn’t changed at all, but gotten worse – why? Because there’s money / self interest in the way of Equality.

 

According to the definitions of ‘Rights’ we can then assume that it is our right to kill other people in the name of our freedom. There is this motto by one of our Presidents here in Mexico that reads “Respect for the Rights of Others is Peace’ – Benito Juárez – But do we even know what such rights are?

So if a person that has the current ‘understanding’ of them having the right to kill, to pursue their happiness at all cost, to use any means possible to have more than the other, to cheat, to lie and deceive in the name of their goal – which is happiness, money, power –then one is supposed to ‘respect their right’ and cross our arms and hope to die? This is precisely what’s missed when taking Words for granted, we don’t measure the actual Meaning of them and instead, we adopt such statements as ‘maxims’ because they sound right. Big mistake.

 

I share my personal experience with the concept of ‘Rights.’ I was very interested in Human Rights since I was probably in 1st grade of primary school, I went to vote for ‘Children’s Rights’ and the whole idea sounded great, I felt proud of myself for learning the children’s rights and being able to ‘have a say’ in such child-participation in some general elections at the time here. But obviously, as I went growing up I realized the world was not moving according to the Words in our Constitution. It was futile to learn our 117 articles in this Country where the very first statement of Equality is violated the moment I step out of the school and see a child my age asking for change to eat. I became disenchanted by the rights I was supposed to ‘hold at heart’ as my Individual Guarantees.  Only much later and fairly recently in my life did I become aware how these ‘rights’ were turned into the ability to own, buy, be happy, seek for my own desires and nevermind the violation of the majority’s rights, I stopped caring or at least being somewhat enthusiastic about ethics and laws, everything sounded too right in words, but reality told another story.

This is the first encounter with reality, first 10 years of my life and I already knew I could no trust the government, the constitution, the police, the banks, the clergy, I still held somewhat faith on a god or teachers and my personal role models, but none of them offered a solution as to Why People are NOT being supported Equally in this world. Then, as I grew up, I stopped caring and like many people in our current society: we simply gave up any change and instead, allowed ourselves to ride the hedonist trip of ‘Free will’ and ‘Free choice’ and Rebelling against the system, which I have described in the following blogs here along with the process wherein we take Self Responsibility and realize how we are all collectively responsible for shaping our current reality ‘as is.’

Why have we even allowed Lack of Money to be a regular condition in this world?
Why have we never questioned poverty and ‘depressions’ as an actual disease that must be cured at the root/ source of the problem, which in all cases is the current monetary system?
Why have we only managed to ‘mitigate’ the problems that affect us ALL and Con.Form to what is presented as temporary solutions to a lack of money – such as further Debt that sounds like Death wherein you end up rolling on your payroll like a shroud wherein all that is left of you is a piece of flesh and bones that forgot about itself and always sought life, but never lived.

211. Why is Life a Struggle? Why Can’t All be just HAPPY?

 

  • Equality has Not been Lived:
Equality
Within our current socioeconomic and political system, Life is not valued as a Right, but something each one has to ‘earn’, and within that it has become a privilege. Money has become the medium through which one is able to access those goods and services that ensure one’s subsistence. One’s ‘Right to Life’ is not a given, but restricted to those who have money. This way of doing things within the current world system is reflective of what we value as a society, which indicates that money is valued over Life.
Many religions and ideologies promote the concept of Equality but have so far failed to bring the point of Equality to a level of practical implementation that can be lived by, where the concept of Equality merely remains in the realm of the abstract and ‘theory’.
http://equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics

 

 

Solution                                                                         :

Within the consideration that Might Makes Right and the Solution to this that is Equality Makes Right, the right to have Equal ability to live in dignity and seek for an actual purpose in life that is not defined by the accumulation of wealth, competing towards another to be ‘more powerful’ or measuring ourselves according to the amount of money we own. It is about Valuing Life as Who and what we All Are, and within this, acting in Self Responsibility according to our participation within the same system, the same ecosystem, the same world-system wherein we must ensure that Everyone is In Fact considered and granted their Equality through the Power that Money will Represent in Equal Money Capitalism, this is the Value of Life made money and granted as an individual guarantee for every single person that is willing to give to others what they want for themselves.

This is real self determination –not the ability to buy that which makes you happy.

 

    Constitutional Equality
    The fundamental point of Life on Earth within a democracy is going to be protected by a Constitution of what is Best for All. Any policy, law or rule must therefore be made within the framework of Constitutional Equality and be aligned to the Principle of What is Best for All. The Principle of What is Best for All implies several other Principles:
  • Honoring the Right to Life
  • Prevention is the Best Cure
  • Equality
  • Do Unto Another as You Would Like to Be Done Unto

 

Equality

 

Within an Equal Money System, the point of having ‘equal money’ is to assist with the psychological harmonization of the human into a harmonious character that no longer lives in fear of his own survival, but lives as Life, gives as Life and receives as Life – equally.
Since we’ve allowed ourselves to invest value into the concept of money, we use money, and more specifically ‘equal money’ as an interim step within the Equality Principle and the Equality Constitutional Development to bring about a psychological re-connection: through distributing money equally, we are “equally distributing value” through what money represents.
This is only a temporary point to rectify the psychological damage that has been done by money and our ideas of money, debt, power, choice, fairness, etc. Once this point of psychological disharmony has been corrected, money as a concept in itself will disappear completely as it will have lost all relevance.

http://equalmoney.org/wiki/Politics

 

 

Rewards                                                                            :

The Right to Life as an Individual and Collective Guarantee implies Self Responsibility understood within the physical and biological terms this implies: we all participate in this world, by us being equally supported to live in the best way possible, we will equally create a world worth living in, a place where children can be born with an assured living condition of harmony and peace – it is what we have always wanted, the best for ourselves, the best lifestyle anyone would have always wanted but always thought we could only ‘get’ by ‘striving for it.’ It won’t be like that any longer.

There will thus be only One Law, as the Rule of Law as the Constitution based on Equality and what is Best for All Life. All other guidelines will be in the form of policy and regulation, which will be required to be laid out within the utmost specificity. Within adhering to specificity and clarity to the utmost level, no space is left for the interpretation of law or policy. If at any stage it turns out that a door for interpretation was left open, this would indicate that the law or policy is not good enough and will have to be specified to close the gap. As such, there will no longer be a need for lawyers as ‘experts’ on law or courts for the purpose of interpreting the law. Education within the Equal Money System will provide everyone with the necessary reading skills to be able to effectively read and assess laws and policies for one self – at the level that it should be assessed, so all can be on an equal ground of understanding and clarity.

309. Equal Distribution of Power

So, why did Collectivism become a single evil word to be feared by every person in the crib of Capitalism? Because it means an Equal Distribution of Power.

 

Within Collectivism, the interests of the majority are guarded and defended from any attempt to monopolize them again – this way of thinking could have prevented a system like capitalism from blooming with such a force as it did in America. Really? Well, we have to actually remember and realize that the nature of the human was to always seek a way to win, to have power and justify it as the most noble means. Of course, no one would have been able to criticize the Pursuit of Happiness since it is such a positively charged experience, how could we? If we essentially learned to grow our individual desires, make of competition an incentive for excellence,  justify inequality with statements like ‘having to earn a living’ while being pushed to be absolutely self-determined to win, to achieve such happiness by becoming the greatest force of labor to honor such god given right to Be Happy- Really?

 

Continuing with CapitalismUS:

 

What was not considered is that within a single person’s ability to Have More than others or make money out of the ‘god given right to own property,’ there would always be someone made poor and left out of such equation, because you can’t  have wealth without poverty, and you can’t have power without abuse. So, this is how a set of words within our constitutional statements, charters and declarations created the necessary broth to cultivate self interest at its finest, perfectly manufactured to implement the most invasive form of an economic model that has transcended the influence of what a ‘governmental system’ should be like, that is what  Capitalism is disguised as lobbyist for Democracy of Liberty and Free Will.

 

This mindset is existent in our very hardwiring wherein we immediately learn that we have to win, and be the best and have the ability to inflict an influence over others, this can be seen in the human being at the very first years of development, becoming the BIOS system of survival and competition in order to ‘win the most.’

 
“In terms of morality, those who are the strongest will rule others and have the power to determine right and wrong. By this definition, the phrase manifests itself in a normative sense. This meaning is often used to define a proscriptive moral code for society to follow.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Might_makes_right

 

The Strongest, the Fittest, the Powerful ones set the rules of the game, it would be to their own detriment to determine what is genuinely best for all as part of each individual’s guarantees, that’s why we have learned to ‘Defend our Rights’ and call that a righteous act, not questioning why we have to ‘defend them’ instead of granting each other access to it as a living guarantee.

 

It is inevitable to come back to this word when looking at systems that govern ourselves, beginning by the acceptance and allowance of the word ‘Power’ as:

 

Power                                                                          
n    noun
1    the ability to do something or act in a particular way.
2    the capacity to influence the behaviour of others, the emotions, or the course of events.
3    a right or authority given or delegated to a person or body. Øpolitical authority or control.

PHRASES

    the powers that be the authorities. [with biblical allusion to Rom. 13:1.]

ORIGIN
    Middle English: from Anglo-Norman French poeir, from an alteration of Latin posse ‘be able’.

 

We have given ourselves the ‘ability’ to direct, influence, control and determine other’s lives, this can only exist if we don’t regard each other as equals. This means that power is a mind generated concept that propitiates an energetic experience of having control/ power over others and as such, base our entire world system on the premise of Inequality and the acceptance and allowance of the word Power imposed to one another, we became ‘Powerless.’

 

Our entire history has been the result of an ongoing ‘battle for power,’ this is why all the great changes took place with wars, this is what causes political division, nationalization, independence, colonization, creation of new government systems, new economic models, new education systems, all about maintaining a hegemonic quality from those that Win. Please watch:

 

Those that win make the History, those that Win set the Rules, those that Win, set the perfect speech to justify the power endowed to an entity called Money wherein power as money and control over the population has become an end, not a means.  The Distribution of Power is the most important variable to consider at a political level for some theorists, I agree as well since ‘Might makes Right’ and determines the lives of everyone influenced by such system level. This is a Realistic perspective on politics, however we have to indulge further to become aware of the Experience held behind power.

 

Being the Hegemon in the system means: you set the rules at your convenience to perpetuate your own establishment of power. How can there be any form of Freedom when the system in itself requires subordinates/slaves to function properly? How can there be any Democracy as in ‘Power of the People’ if People’s power is subdued to a ‘greater order’ such as the government and authorities that we have accepted and allowed to exist with such self determined power, which should not even be a necessary organism if every man could be in fact self regulated in the first place. But,we created the necessity for an all seeing eye because we were incapable of living among each other as equals, we have always looked only after ourselves and for that, Capitalism only became the ‘consequential outflow’ of what is and has always been the Real Human Nature . Evil.

 

Power is associated with Energy, Energy/ Might/ Control/Influence over others can only exist through concepts that we have made real through the mind, such as the Power that Money has been endowed with: it is an imaginary entity to which contains our living rights and responsibilities to, it rules our lives, it decides who lives and who dies. The same as the power given to any authority in any level of governmental position throughout history: the sovereign represents the accumulation of individual inability/incapability to decide what’s best for oneself and for all as equals. That is the reverse of power: not being able to decide what’s best for all, hence we created our hegemons, because we could just not decide how to direct ourselves.

 

The desire for power determines a type of regime, economic orientations, ideological commitments and the psychology of the policy makers which explains why the individual pursuit of power/happiness/’moreness’ is guarded at all cost, and yes that means obtained and pursued through Wars.  This is why America will be willing to wage a war that costs Trillions of dollars if they consider that the Benefits outweigh the Cost of such intervention/ invasion.

 

The origin of all nations at the moment stem from the result of winning a battle for independence or the establishment of a definitive colony. Either way, a conflict and friction is implied. Sounds familiar? Yes, this is how the Mind obtains its Power as Energy to keep existing: the Mind is founded upon the individualistic pursue of Experience above Common Sense. This is the real evil that has been the foundation of the word Power to exist as it does, as a metaphysical imposition over the physical, a concept made reality through deliberate abuse, violence and neglect, quieting down and eradicating anyone that dares to Speak in the name of Life in Equality

This has been the story of our human see-evil-I-zation, are you willing to be part of the revolutionary change in the way Power is conceived?

 

Real Power can only exist in one breath, I learned this from Bernard Poolman and in that moment I realized to what extent the entire meaning of ‘Power’ had become a terrible lie that we would use to kill, extort, abuse and ponder ourselves as superior or inferior than others, nothing else but a  confabulation that generates an experience at a mind level that most humans have become addicted to: power, control, authority, the ability to influence others at will, this is the foundation of our mind stemming from our creator, this is the Real Nature we’re dealing with.

 

By Accepting Power in its current meaning within our vocabulary, we have accepted and allowed wars, poverty, abuse, extortion, extinction and all forms of violation toward the Physical world in which we exist in and a, this is how each one of us is equally responsible, by mere virtue of accepting ‘Power’ as a definition in separation of ourselves as Equals.  We have to always consider that all concepts and all systems stem from the way in which we have Lived a word, and so far, power has dictated the way we have lived within and without for Energy/Money/the System instead of considering the most basic foundation upon which such ‘power’ is built upon: The Physical Equality that we exist as.

307. CapitalismUS: Pursuit of Happiness

What does Capitalism and the United States Declaration of Independence have in common?
“Capitalism is the progressive ideal, because it is the only social system that leaves man free to pursue — and achieve — his own happiness.”

– capitalism.org

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

United States Declaration of Independence

 

 

What Happened to Liberty, Fraternity and Equality? or Unity in such case?

Pursuit of Happiness was included by Thomas Jefferson and some claim he removed ‘state’ – which was John Locke’s original statement –  others claim  he took out ‘private property’ in order to include this maxim that shaped the mentality of the American Nationalism that has supported an indiscriminate invasive agenda toward every other country in the world in order to establish Democracies while wearing a badge of Liberty and Justice. Well, these are just words that have essentially been the base foundation for Capitalism becoming a political meaning, a way of living more than just a way to trade and regulate living resources/ life on Earth.  This means that words like Democracy ceased to exist as an actual ‘Power of the people’ and became the ability to Buy Your Freedom and Pursue your Self Interest,  wherein according to the amount of money you have, you’ll be able to secure your place among the beautiful people with a great amount of money and benefits that are guarded and backed at a Constitutional level that stands as the frequently recurred sourced of defense in order to exert free will, free choice and free speech that more often than not kill, harm, extort or abuse more than exerting any honorable living principle that could make a real man ‘free.’

 

The trick here is placing ‘pursuit’ before Happiness. Why is it not a readily given convenience and experience for all living beings? Oh because that would make the game just too boring for those that enjoyed keeping everyone entertained within this social-ascension process, just like it happened in heaven with the whole ascension enslavement that turned out to be nothing more but a sick game by those that were wanting to keep everyone focused on achieving the unattainable. And on Earth, if some did experience such well being, it was mostly part of the greater scheme of which these fortunate ones weren’t either aware of. A great life of massive proportions has become our own yoke or joke, whichever makes the most sense to you.

 

 

So Happiness and Freedom were the meaning of having no cap, no control from ‘external forces’ i.e. government over your own self interest – and this is how our free markets exist without any form of regulation by father government or mother law, because corporations are able to stand as their own moral entities that pursue their own happiness and promote it through the very same weapons of free speech, free will, self determination to create needs and desires in people to become addicted to buying their products, oh  and your very well used Democracy word to give the political righteous power to the people to equally pursue the same as you, but never allowing them to know that it was a rigged game from the get-go.

 

This is the ‘noble endeavor’ that a Nation like America took in order to justify wars in order to protect such freedom and security as well as ‘eradicating evil’ in the form of ‘terrorism.’ Right, we are all aware that is absolutely disputable when the casualties of war were mostly civilians whose nation was simply abducted by a righteous concept of liberation and democracy, which is nowhere to be found in such places.

 

We have become prisoners by our own words and concepts, our own brainwashing wherein we react to a word like Equality but defend with pride the right to kill in the name of one’s ‘freedom’ and ‘justice.’

Brilliant Self-Enslavement.

 

The Malady of the Mind Made Economic System

 

“Capitalism is the ethical ideal, because it is the only social system that leaves man free to be moral — to live by the use of his own mind.” – capitalism.org

 

So, once that we have the premise of ‘freedom’ and ‘happiness’  we have the individualized exertion that satisfies one’s own mind. Here is where our investigation takes place, because we understand what the mind is as an energy-based consciousness system that is in essence a parasitical entity that we’ve separated ourselves from and into, which functions precisely on all of these concepts on freedom, self determination, individual self interest, the right to ‘do whatever it takes to get what you want’ and within such possessed nature of being, we have disregarded each other as equals, we stopped caring who we would have to step onto, leave out of the game in the name of one’s own benefit, we became autocratic and (de)generated various entities as words to exert this ‘living modality’ and make it a ‘collective’ decision, such as what capitalism implies which is the actual malady of the mind made an economic system.

 

 

So, why have we been Redefining Capitalism? Because we cannot trust a single word or concept that comes from the past conception of ourselves in this reality where every single word implies a monetary value such as we’ve realized in our series of ‘Redefining Capitalism’ in this blog in the past series of entries that I will leave below for further reference. I realize that it is vital to redefine word by word so that we don’t commit the same mistakes again of generating laws and rights and sign them off as these nice sounding words that have no practical and sustainable ways to be achieved. 

 

The locks of our reality exist in the words we use to define the way we live and interact with each other, the social contracts, and the current words we have as our constitutions stem from the Enlightenment era (no pun intended John Locke’s ideas) which should already be pondered on whether such ‘wisdom’ is applicable to a human that is certainly not the same as the one two hundred years ago.

 

As we go redefining the very concepts that we have enslaved ourselves with and by, a new way of understanding reality shall emerge through us integrating these new meanings and use them as a certainty of an outcome that is inexorable in common sense, only our own self interest could prevent it from happening, so that is our responsibility to stop.

 

Pursuit of Happiness Redefined

What would the Pursuit of Happiness can be redefined as? Simple, the convenience of living as Equals in a world like ours where no one would be left out from being born with support to live wherein happiness is not pursued any longer, but lived as an inherent quality of well being created and sustained by all participants in society. We can truly then say that we make each other happy.

 

I suggest reading the following blogs for further context about ‘words’, so that we can continue with looking at concepts: several words creating a meaning that stands as a piece of accepted and allowed experience, action or denomination that becomes part of who we are as our reality.
